Books Kids Can Escape With from Harper Collins

Looking for an adventurous read for your children? Check out Harper Collins's Books Kids Can Escape With list. This list has a book for every kind of reader, starting at age 6 and up. I've included their list, which I found here, below. 

At every age, people look to books to take them on journeys and into worlds that we may not have access to. That’s why we think escapism is one of the best #ReasonsToRead! Here are a few books that will take your kids to places:

The Bridge to Terabithia by Katherin Paterson

Ages: 8 - 12
Paterson’s classic story beauitfully illustrates the real life issues of friendship and loss through the lenses of imagination and escape.

Paddington by Michael Bond

Ages: 4 - 8
Traveling to the streets of London has never been so easy, or fun, than with lovable and earnest, Paddington.

Ages: 6 - 10
Oh, the mystery of a key without a lock! You child will slip right into the story as Nancy tries discover where the key belongs and what it will open.

Ages: 8 - 12
Pirates! Magic! Treasure! A gargoyle? This hilariously, witty novel is what Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events might have looked like set on the high seas!

The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary

Ages: 8 - 12
The title says it all! Who doesn’t want to run off with a mouse on a tiny motorcycle?

Ages: 8 - 12
We’ll let the critics speak for this one: “With engaging characters, a globe-trotting plot and dangerous villains, it is hard to find something not to like. Equal parts edge-of-your-seat suspense and heartfelt coming-of-age.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
